If youâ€™ve read about King Arthur and his knights, or even watched â€œGame of Thrones,â€ you know what jousting is. But have you heard of water jousting? Think next-level jousting over a body of water. Horses are replaced by boats, and jousters donâ€™t wear any armorâ€”all they have to protect themselves is a small shield. Water jousting is a tradition in the harbor city of SÃ¨te, France, that goes back to 1666. Robert Bancilhon, 75, learned the sport from his father and passed it on to his son, Christophe.
